Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.

As Election Day fever ramps up more and more each day, you might have gotten caught up in it. And, you might be asking yourself a few timely questions: How can I make my vote heard now (especially if I didn’t register for early voting)? How can I register my vote in more than one state? And how can I vote more than once?

The answer to all those questions, from a strictly legal perspective, is you can’t. However, if you want to cast your vote by choosing entrées at a few select restaurants in and around Washington, D.C., then it’s all good.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Meat lovers rejoice! October 11 is National Sausage Pizza Day.

Whether you prefer your crust as thick as The Oxford American English Dictionary or paper-thin, today, there is one important topic (or topping for that matter) we can all agree on: Sausage!

In fact, Pizza Hut thinks the meaty topping is so considerable, it needs to be discussed at the national level. The pizza chain is offering free pizza for life (read one large pizza a week for 30 years) to anyone who asks Mitt Romney and Barack Obama whether they prefer sausage or pepperoni on their pie during the town hall presidential debate on October 16.

Food in the Field gives a sneak peek into what CNN's team is eating, and the food culture they encounter as they travel the globe. Today's contributor, Senior Photojournalist Mark Walz covers the White House.

With the election only weeks away, we all have a choice to make. Some of us already know for whom we'll be pulling the lever, while others may still be on the fence.

Now there's another choice to make. Red State Bourbon or Blue State Bourbon. The first has a elephant on its label, the other, a donkey. Both bottles have the same hand-crafted bourbon whiskey inside, made in Bardstown, Kentucky.

Ask, and you shall receive. We implored CNN Political Producer Shawna Shepherd to suss out the secrets of vice presidential candidate and avid hunter Paul Ryan's much-vaunted homemade venison sausage, and goodness, did she deliver.

According to Sunday's pool report, the secret to Ryan's venison sausage is spices from Tenuta's Deli ("A Kenosha Tradition Since 1950!") where he spoke with reporters while purchasing supplies for this year's haul.

Coming up October 16, 2012: Second Presidential Debate @ 7pm ET

Presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney may have been gobbling their way through the greasy spoon grub and deep-fried fare of the campaign trail, but today - it's crunch time. The two men need to be firing on all cerebral cylinders for tonight's presidential debate at the University of Denver, and can use every advantage they can get.

Voters will be hanging on every word that comes out of the candidates' mouths, so in these final hours, it's crucial what goes into them. We turned to David Solot, a Ph.D. student in organizational psychology at Walden University, with a Masters in clinical psychology to share his top tips for maximizing mental performance via food.
